Helldivers 2 gets PS5 gameplay trailer at the PlayStation Showcase

The trailer features a cooky opening with a man's family getting slaughtered, before moving into a fast-paced adrenalin-filled shooter, which is very different for the Helldivers series. We also learned that the game will be coming to PS5 and PC sometime in 2023, though, the exact date is unknown.

You can check out the trailer down below and get a feel for the game and its new gameplay.
